News Comments > Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Reviews; Hi-Rez Texture Plans

As to Dark Souls 2 combat, I don't see that fitting a mass appeal that these games have. DS2 has fantastic combat, but it would dramatically slow down the pace of the game and reduce the number of enemies one can face at any time to just a couple.

They don't need to go THAT far, but the whole "get surrounded by enemies, of which only one attacks at a time, and you can instantly counter attack regardless of character direction" thing is just a bit much. I can sort of understand it from Batman because he's a god damn super hero, but here it just looks jarring.

I dunno, I don't much care for this QTE-style combat adopted from Screed and Arkham. Instant counters, traversing yards at a time instantly, "press A to do spiffy animation attack"... all makes me feel pretty detached from the action. Wish they'd gone with a more deliberate, tactile system.

You people are putting way too much stock into this. More often than not the requirements for a game are drawn out of a hat. Evil Within will undoubtedly run fine on an older graphics card; there hasn't been an inkling of in-game footage to show otherwise.

Unfortunately the thing holding it back is the biggest part of the game. The combat is just completely basic and poorly balanced.

Is there an ultimate goal for Rift before release or are they just winging it until they decide it's good enough?

The 970 is incredible...I find it mind-blowing that many review sites are saying "yeah it's good" or "not bad!"...what are they smoking?

GPU is only as useful as the games (or present lack thereof) it renders.

Well I haven't heard any stories yet of Wasteland 2 raping mothers and murdering children, which is pretty much all I need to know before buying it.

In other news, the FFXV trailer is actually pretty interesting. Then again, FFXIII trailers were interesting, and look how that turned out.

To be fair, this barely qualifies as an article. Looks more like the work of some intern than a full story.

But it comes with a "Cable for Windows".

That could mean anything!

Let me reiterate, I have been lurking here for 10 or so years... Blues has a Forum? Isn't every news post a new forum topic, essentially?

Because the front page shows two days worth of news. Most Comment discussions only last as long as the article is on the front page. The forums proper exist on the off chance somebody wants a longer discussion. That being said, I don't know if I've ever actually used the forums proper.

Huh.. I had exactly 1 wireless device ever, that was a mouse. It ran out of battery always in the worst situations. And it was heavy as fuck. Wired all the way. Not to mention that there is no decent way to connect a high tickrate USB device wireless.

The mouse and keyboard never venture beyond my desk. The gamepad is *never on my desk*.

This sounds like a bunch of idiots at MS still think PC gaming exclusively means huddling over a desk in front of a little screen.

The cost of an ereader spread over the hundreds of ebooks I own (all free of DRM, all backed up, and all bought at low prices) is negligible. The future of media is digital, how do you think books are somehow going to weather the storm? "But I like the smell of it" isn't going to cut it. If anything, books are even worse off than other media because an ebook is generally between 500KB and 5MB.


Dead battery. Broken device, either physically (whoops, dropped it and cracked the screen) or via software (whoops, update bricked the machine). Publisher revokes access to eBook for any reason or goes out of business or DRM server dies, whoops you can't read it anymore (yes you can turn off Wi-Fi but that also cuts you off from getting more books). Can't easily lend a book to a friend. Hope you remember your password, or your account isn't hacked.

So I take it you don't have a Steam account?

Oh you mean like the telephone, or the TV set? Maybe like the desktop computer?

No... I mean like the radio. There is no "next gen" phone or TV. Print books are in every possible way inferior to ebooks.

My old setup was arrow keys-based. end=jump, middlemouse=aim, RMB=crouch, Ctrl=reload, enter=use. I played a lot of Counter-Strike like that before forcing myself over to wasd. Now the only nonstandard thing I do is f=use.

It's a flight sim / space sim thing.

Been enjoying that great surfeit of flight and space sims over the past decade, eh?

As far as I'm concerned, print books are dead. In one or two more generations they'll become nothing more than a novelty.
